Abstract:
"My research project at the Italian Academy deals with cultural tradition as a heritage transmitted through images. In other words, with collective memory handed down through figures. In my first paper, moving from the German art historian Aby Warburg, I tried to interrogate the sense of a chain of images related to bodily postures expressing emotions (pathos-formulae between the two polar extremes of ecstatic mania and depressive melancholy): the analysis of the historical and formal link between Manet’s Dejeuner sur l’herbe, Raimondi’s (and Raphael’s) Judgment of Paris and an Hellenistic sarcophagus in Villa Medici, allowed me to reflect upon the meaning of the concepts of “model” and “origin.”"
